Build Better Faster Websites: the New Dynamic Newsletter: Things are Heating Up
By Bud Parr • Issue #131 • View online
I saw a great presentation by Paul Calvano from Akamai last week on the adoption of web performance techniques. The web is failing (See the image below) except for SEO. A lot of that dismal performance comes from images and third-party scripts, but I can’t help but to think this is a great argument for more JAMstack sites. Besides, we in this community are fanatics about performance, right? :)
Climate issues and performance are tightly wound. In her “JAMuary” series of articles on Dev.to, Divya asks the question “Is the JAMstack eco-friendly?” As web professionals there is no more important question than how can we help reduce our footprint. Web hosts and CDNs are starting to take steps, but there’s no getting around our collective massive and growing energy usage. JAMstack gives us a great start, but we can also be conscious of our energy use by making our sites lighter weight and reducing build times. My company has turned off branch builds at our host Netlify and only use preview builds when necessary, and have begun to monitor to find opportunities to reduce. It’s a start. I’d love to hear more ideas from the community.
Carry on the conversation in our community
